How does your homeschool parent support group support you? Mine offers many wonderful opportunities. They organize field trips, ice skating free-skate (along with other sport related activities), parent curriculum discussion, project fairs, curriculum re-sale opportunities and sharing time for uplifting parent-educators. But now, my support group provides dissections. The Mommy became the RockStar of the month by signing up two Gs for a cow's eye dissection. The third G was asked to be an assistant to the medical presenter-educator. The Daddy and I helped each G with the scalpel, but really, there wasn't much to the process.
It just seems that there is more to dissections (science in general) when the parent-educators try to take on such a task independent of any outside help. We tried to dissect two years ago on our own from a mail-order kit. We got through the seastar, clam and worm, but the frog remains to be dissected. So, when we got an incredible lesson about the eye from Dr. Callentine, I was ecstatic! So grateful for making this memory with my kids.
